The Los Angeles Police Department is on the hunt for a man described as 60 or 70 years old, who was caught taking upskirt pictures of teenage girls at the Westfield Topanga Plaza Mall.

According to a press release from the police department, a mother found him out when he tried to snap photos of her 7-year-old daughter on July 20 at about 3:45 p.m. She followed him, and watched as he did the same thing—successfully—to three teenagers. He was reportedly taking the pictures using a small camera.

The suspect was able to get away before mall security could get their hands on him. He's described as between 5'3 and 5'6, weighing 140 to 160 pounds. He was wearing glasses and carrying a brown backpack at the time.
